Word has been handed down from on high that the PSP will be receiving a firmware update mid-September.
We learned of this update while happening upon an article referring to using your Sony VAIO laptop to record 1-Seg broadcasts to a Memory Stick Duo. The article states that "a PSP system software update is planned for mid-September for the playback of recorded 1-Seg programs."
Doesn't get much clearer than that. Err, actually it does. While the PSP itself is getting a 1-Seg tuner in Japan, there's no mention about allowing users to record 1-Seg broadcasts actually using their PSPs.
There's also no mention of an actual firmware version number. The "System Software Update" that the article refers to may be 3.60, the firmware version shipping with the PSP-2000s. Ultimately though this is a good sign; it signifies that existing PSP owners won't be left in the dust in terms of having the latest firmware versions on their (PSP-1000) systems.
